This beach is awesome. Love the white sand and pretty beach beach area. We saw dolphins playing in the water, and it was so peaceful this time of year. Water was cold, so no swimming of course, but just nice to sit outside and soak...More

Come for an hour or the day, how about a week? Winter or summer, sunny or cloudy, you’re at the beach, Man! Pleasant restaurants, and funky old or fancy new hotels. Spend a lot or a little.

St Pete is just far enough south for the beach to be a little less crowded. Good for families - not just parties. Sand is soft and white with shells to hunt for and dolphins to enjoy!

One of the best beaches in the world! Big expansive soft, white sand beach. Dolphins frequently are playing in the waves , especially in the morning. Great for young families and the older crowd.

beautiful water, clean beach, not crowded while we were there. Saw dolphins, and the sunset is not to be missed over the gulf. Go to one of the rooftop bars (360 rooftop at the Kimpton is perfect). Go there!

There is nothing like a beautiful sunset on the beach. It was too chilly for me to swim, but I enjoyed walking on the beach and watching the sunset.
